Incotex, Borrelli, Brioni,Kiton etc. all make immensely better pants due to a solid foundation of better construction, materials and can be had on ebay new for what a new pair of BR suit pants can cost. BR uses some pretty flimsy material which you notice after wearing some of these better names.
Incotex and Brioni make more traditional fitting trousers. Borrelli makes some very narrow fitting shoe showing trousers. All can be easily purchased for less than 150 and well worth it at that price range. 2 lycra? you must be joking.
J has referral links...I just bought another pair of Khaki Borrelli off of VCHorse(Lance for) for under $150. And Incotex/Brioni are some of my fav's as well.
I will say I do like the 5% lycra 95% cotton t shirts by BR with jeans when dressing down.
